Vegetarian Caesar Salad

Vegetarian Caesar Salad
This Recipe Is:

WebMD Recipe from Foodily.com

It’s a salad —how could it not be vegetarian? Well, Worcestershire sauce has anchovies in it — therefore it isn’t vegetarian. The consistency of this dressing is more like a vinaigrette, but you can add more low-fat mayo if you want it thicker. You can find vegetarian Worcestershire sauce in places like Whole Foods. It’s also great in Bloody Marys.

Ingredients
Prep: 15 minutes | Cook: 20 minutes | Total Time: 35 minutes
  • 2 tablespoons
    mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon
    Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon
    vegetarian Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup
    parmesan cheese, freshly grated, plus more for garnish
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    salt
  • 1/4 cup
    olive oil, plus more for tossing croutons
  • 1 small loaf
    dense country bread
  • 3 hearts
    romaine
  •  
    parmesan cheese, either grated or shaved
  •  
    lemon
  •  
    kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the cider vinegar, mayonnaise, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and Parmesan cheese. Add black pepper to taste. 
  2. Slowly add the olive oil, whisking constantly, until emulsified. Taste and adjust seasonings as necessary and set dressing aside.
